SELF-DEFENSE TRAINING has always been my childhood desire. I have a Green Belt in TAEKWONDO the Korean (art of hand & foot) &
would like to practice & earn a Black Belt in this Martial Arts. I am also interested in getting familiarized with Aikido, the
Japanese art of (pure self-defense); KRAV MAGA, Israeli art of (close quarter combat); & Kali, Filipino art of (stick-fighting);
The famous English poet Sir William Wordsworth, had once remarked, " If your wealth is lost in life, nothing is lost; If your
character is lost, then something is lost; and If your health is lost, then everything is lost." A very true statement indeed.
Bearing this in mind, I have started to exercise, like old times, at a local health club and Spa, for men and women of
all ages. It is called the 'LA Fitness Club'. I have always exercised at the YMCA Springfield, ILL thrice a week, for
1/2 years every 5 years or so. But somehow, I always have had, to quit going to the gym; due to work-schedule or being
just plain busy because of other extra curricular activities. I wish that I could go to the gym to exercise; 5 times per
week uninterrupted for the rest of my life ! Wouldn't that be lovely; If I could perform my push-ups / pull-ups / sit-ups
regularly every day ???
I have always had a very slim & athletic figure and have never had an excessive weight problem. But during the 1990's,
I accumulated about 15 pounds, of fat, principally around my abdomen, as I had quit smoking. This desire to shed this weight
& have a firm stomach, has compelled me to start to exercise regularly. I have started some light-weight training, with the
hope that someday I will have a strong, lean, muscular, V-shaped body !! I hope, I get to achieve it.
